Canadian neoclassical-influenced technical death metal unit First Fragment will release debut full-length, “Dasein,” on May 20th via Unique Leader Records.
Captured at Humanoise Studios with Mathieu Marcotte (Augury, Humanoid) and mixed by Hugues Deslauriers (Augury, Defilementory, Vengeful etc.), the eleven track long player features guest appearances from current and former members of Spawn Of Possession, Obscura, Augury, Inferi, and Elderoth. The “Dasein” artwork was crafted by Sam Nelson (Incandescence, Wayfarer, Stoic Dissention).
Relays First Fragment guitarist/vocalist Phil Tougas: “While a lot of the material on this record dates back to between six and eleven years, it is still very fresh sounding. It’s an unrelenting and over-the-top album, yet at the same time most of it remains catchy enough to stick in your head. Dasein should satisfy most people into the newer wave of extreme technical metal, but the exaggerated amount neoclassical metal/flamenco influences and non-stop guitar/bass soloing alone should please power metal fans as well.”
